Red face [APPS] [NO ROOT] Huawei EmotionUI Launcher, Livewallpaper, Weather App, and More!

Hello.

These are a few Huawei EmotionUI apps - the launcher, a nice weather-themed live wallpaper, weather and also a couple others. I figured I'd upload them because they're tricky to find out in the wild, especially since most Huawei ROMs are locked down into a hard-to-extract '.app' file. If you'd like any other Huawei things to be uploaded, just PM me and I'll see what I can do.

EmotionUI Launcher:
The launcher is super smooth and opens apps blazing fast, on par if not faster than the likes of launchers like Nova and Apex. But, it's not really great in the way of customization... like, at all, unfortunately. You can change the wallpaper, move around apps, add widgets, and change screen transitions. That's about it. Also, in a rather iOS-like way, there's no app drawer, all your apps are on your homescreen.
Features -
- EXTREMELY smooth and fast
- Custom transitions: normal, perspective, windmill, squeeze, box, flip over, rotate, page, and cylinder. Page has wallpaper problems on my Nexus 4, not sure if it'll be a problem for you. Apart from perspective and flip over (which are both really nice), they're pretty run-of-the-mill transition effects found on most other launchers.
- Icon background shadow effect
- Up to 9 homescreens
- Custom widget selection interface (similar to HTC Sense)
- Notification counters on icons
- Folder support

Tablet Version (NOTE: I haven't tested this one, because I don't have a tablet. So I'm not sure if it works.): https://docs.google.com/file/d/0B3lI...it?usp=sharing

Ascend Mate Version (NOTE: This version is for the massive Ascend Mate that has a 6.1 inch screen so it should resolve most people's complaints about the 4x4 icons being too big for their devices. Unfortunately, it kept force closing on my Nexus 4 so I wasn't able to test it. Thanks to MP2005 for providing the apk!): https://www.dropbox.com/s/7py0r1z535...wLauncher6.apk

Here's a picture of the launcher along with MeWidget:


Weather Live Wallpaper:
This is a really great live wallpaper, it's light on the processor and looks gorgeous. There's an option to synchronize with Huawei's weather app so install that too if you want that feature.
Features -
- Very Smooth
- Choose between the following weather conditions: sunny, mostly cloudy, cloudy, fog, showers, thunderstorms, rain, snow, windy, hot, cold, clear night skies.
- Synchronizes with the weather app to display current weather conditions

Some Pictures:


Weather App:
Thanks a lot to idhbar for posting this app.
This is a superb weather app with gorgeous background animations like HTC Sense. It also includes the weather clock widget but it doesn't seem to work; probably the same problem that the MeWidget has. High-resolution screens might suffer from no-so-great pixelated visuals.
Features -
- Smooth
- Animated weather background
- Multiple location support and add/remove locations
- Auto-locate weather support
- Direct link to Accuweather.com
- Displays current temperature, high/low for the day, and also a 4-day forecast
- Synchronizes with the weather live wallpaper to display current weather conditions

And some pictures:



MeWidget (NOTE: might not work!):
This widget is supposed to only work with the Huawei EmotionUI launcher, but unfortunately I couldn't get it to work. I figured I'd post it and maybe someone could figure out a way to get it working. I tried pushing it to system/app and fixing permissions but no luck. It's essentially a widget that lets you mix a variety of widgets into one - album pictures, a music player, a clock, the weather, things like that. It's really nice, and it's a shame it doesn't work correctly even if I try it on the launcher itself. It can be installed without pushing to system/app, but'll just display 'problem loading widget'. For me, anyway.

ALSO: If you want more Huawei apps, check out this post by Team Android:
http://www.teamandroid.com/2012/04/2...hone-download/

They successfully ported the following apps from the Huawei P1:
- File Manager
- Huawei Cloud (16GB free storage)
- Camera
- Music
- Keyboard
- Wallpaper Chooser
- Sound Recorder (replaces system app)
- DLNA app

I didn't test all of these, so I can't say they all work. I tried the Camera, Music, and Keyboard, and only the camera worked, the other two crashed. But you might as well give it a go, right?

AND ALSO: If you'd like to try more apps (or if the ones above might not have worked for you), check out my friend GalaxyUser's thread: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...php?p=42359563

He successfully ported the following apps:
- Launcher
- Camera
- Gallery
- DLNA
- File Manager
- Notes
- Music
- Profiles
- Weather
- Wallpaper
- Weather Live Wallpaper
- Keyboard
- Security Guard
- Handwriting App

Hope you guys like!

Thanks for sharing. Hopefully you can find a way to get The live wallpaper to allow me to select auto sync for weather

In android 4.0.3 with screen HDPI resolution the apps are force closing. Any idea if these apps will run in this configuration?
